Festival of the Institute for Music and Acoustics for the
anniversary celebration of »10 Years ZKM in
ZKM | Karlsruhe
8 pm, admission € 18/15
With the “Flying Circus” festival, the ZKM | Institute of Music
and Acoustics will spectacularly ring in the celebrations for “10 Years
ZKM in Hall A”;. Four days of concerts, installations and publication
presentations will impressively show what the Institute stands for. On Saturday
and Sunday, the concert program will be enlarged by unknown flying objects.
The artist group “machine cent’red humanz” has developed
blimps that emit sounds and can in this way communicate with each other and
react upon their surroundings. Together with the installations of Katja Wahl
and Florian Grond, they point to the interdisciplinary orientation of the Institute.
The presentation of two publications – the book “Computer:
Musik: Ästhetik” (i.e.,
Computer: Music: Aesthetics) by Johannes Goebel, first director of the ZKM
| Institute of Music and Acoustics, and the interactive composition DVD “Let’s
make Small Fish” – will afford a representative example of
series of successful publications.
